Re: Men: How Much Body Hair Do You Have?

damned EAR hair...

How the hell does hair end up in the ears? Is (as Red Green suggests) the skin getting too tired to hold my hair up that high?

Re: Men: How Much Body Hair Do You Have?

I think the hair's just having a laugh. When guys lose their hair, it's not lost, it's just sneaking back into the scalp and poking out the ears, going "HAHAHAHA!"

I am moderately hairy.

The area covering Europe, Middle East and India produces a lot of hairy people. I suspect that Neanderthal DNA may have contributed to that.

Re: Men: How Much Body Hair Do You Have?

I've feeling that Neanderthal Man and Modern man were equally hairy. IIRC, Chimps have less hair than humans, its just longer.

I'm moderately hairy, but it's pretty much all over, down to the back of my hand and my feet.

Same history, but now sparse.

Re: Men: How Much Body Hair Do You Have?

Sparsely hairy here...the only real chest hair I have is around my areola. I get random long wispy black hairs on my back shoulders and arms, but not in enough amounts to constitute any sort of actual growth...just enough to look odd.

I do have a mustache and goatee however, though they won't connect to save my life. I've tried to grow a beard, but on my upper jaw/cheeks the hair is thin and patchy while on my neck, beard worthy hair only grows beneath my chin down to my adams apple...almost in a direct line down from my goatee.

Re: Men: How Much Body Hair Do You Have?

Since it was previousely said females may contribute, European without Neandertal-genes reporting in. Not hairy at all, and hence not really required to shave. I wax my legs 3 or 4 times a year for looks and keep my armpits clean-shaven for olfactorial reasons. I'd never dream of shaving my pubic hair, though. IMO there should be some difference between a grown woman and a child. As a matter of fact, I dumped a guy because of that. If he wants a 10 year old, he shouldn't apply with a mature lady
